Wine Region: Southern Rhone Valley, France

Grape: Viognier

Tasting Notes

Clear yellow with bright, limpid green hues. Very representative of the Viognier grape, with white fruit, peach and floral notes making this exuberant wine highly attractive. Exceedingly well-balanced: lively and rich, the viognier has unctuous and pelasing mouthfeel. A fine, fresh wine to be drunk young.

About the Winery

The Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné was created in 1834 on a hillside by the Rhone and a family with a passion for winemaking. Over the years, the Domaines Paul Jaboulet Aîné took ownership of the finest appellations of the northern Rhone Valley, including not only Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, but also Crozes Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Cornas and Saint-Péray, and Condrieu.
In 2006, the Frey family with a long standing reputation in the Champagne region and owners of Château La Lagune in Bordeaux, took over the Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné. Caroline, the eldest daughter of the family, who has a degree in oenology from Bordeaux, works with her teams using biodynamic methods in a single-minded quest for perfection. Their cutting-edge winemaking, combined with the scrupulous care given to vine growing in exceptional terroirs, leads to believe that the greatest vintages are yet to come.
